Blinken on Ukraine and Russian Aggression

The secretary of state named the reasons why the United States patronizes Ukraine

Antony Blinken made a short statement about why the United States of America is helping Ukraine in this war and has united several countries for it. According to the secretary, there are 2 reasons for this. The first is Ukraine itself. Blinken bluntly said that when one country tries to subjugate another country to its will, to forcefully change its borders, this is an attempt to declare the primacy of force. And that is what Russia is now trying to do against Ukraine.

However, Russia's actions are aggression not only against Ukraine but against everything that humanity has been building for generations for a peaceful and civilized existence.

"It's not only an aggression against Ukraine. It is an aggression against the basic principles that are embodied in the United Nations charter, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and a whole series of norms and rules that many generations laboured to build," Antony Blinken.

The secretary confirmed that these codes, rules and principles are not pure truth, and there may be errors in their construction and implementation. However, it is these rules that guarantee that humanity will not have to go through another world war.
